Mr. Jetplane = Big Kid

I just spoke with him this morning, and he informed me that kids in his TX neighborhood egged all the cars on their street. All the cars/trucks that is, except his... Kids adore Mr. Jetplane, he plays with them when they are outside and he talks to EVERYBODY.

Funniest story - One afternoon, Mr. Jetplane came home from work and jumped in the shower, we had somewhere to go. I hear the doorbell ring and its the neighbor boy who is 11 or so. I assume he's selling something or a ball went into our backyard, ya know, normal stuff. Oh no... here's how it went down.

Me: "Hi, how you are?"
Boy: "I'm good...um... is Mr. Jetplane home?"
Me: "He's actually in the shower right now, is there anything I can help you with?"
Boy: "Ummm... can he come over and play video games with me? I mean... when he's out of the shower?"
Me: "Well, we have plans tonight, so I don't think he's going to be to able to."
Boy: "Oh... ok... will you tell him I stopped by? Let him know that he can come over to play video games with me."
Me: "I will. I'm sure he'll be excited to play video games with you."

I'm not making this up. This actually happened. The kids in the neighborhood ask me all the time when is he coming back...

That's hilarious. People are probably gonna think it was Mr Jetplane that egged the cars since his is the only one untouched!!

How sweet! Sounds like my husband...he says "No kids!", but he's the first one to hit up the video games and trampoline with my little bother and nephews.
